Experienced Los Angeles Admiralty and Maritime Law Attorney
At the Law Offices of Aksana M. Coone, we focus our practice on maritime and admiralty matters, representing passengers and crew members from around the world injured in maritime accidents. We represent cruise ship passengers, as well as individuals injured aboard private boats, yachts, and various personal watercrafts in personal injury, sexual assault and wrongful death claims. We also represent U.S. and foreign crew members injured aboard cruise ships and other commercial vessels in Jones Act negligence, unseaworthiness, and maintenance and cure claims, as well as wage and contractual benefits disputes.
If you have been injured in a maritime accident, you need an experienced maritime attorney handling your case to ensure you obtain skilled legal representation and all the compensation to which you are entitled. Unlike incidents that occur on land, maritime claims involve a complex interplay between state, federal and foreign law, as well as international maritime conventions with which general personal injury practitioners are often unfamiliar. The claims of cruise passengers are also governed and severely limited by cruise line Passage Contracts, while seafarer claims may be limited by Collective Bargaining Agreements or individual Employment Agreements. You need an attorney that can skillfully navigate through all the legal aspects and hurdles of your maritime claim.
Attorney Aksana Coone has extensive experience in the handling passenger and crew member maritime claims in state and federal courts. Having represented insurance companies, tour operators, cruise lines and various ship owners for over 17 years, Aksana Coone has a unique insight into the litigation tactics of these companies. During her years of representing various cruise lines, ship owners and tour operators, Aksana Coone also drafted various cruise Passage Contract and crew employment agreement terms and understands how these contractual terms affect and limit passenger and crew rights. When it comes to your case, you need an attorney that has the right expertise and understanding of how these contractual terms and maritime law affect your case. Trust the experience and skill of Attorney Aksana Coone to get you the best possible results for your case.
